Making NY-Style Bagels since 1962
House of Bagels was opened in 1962 at the original location at 2nd and Geary Blvd., our famous bagel recipe having been brought here from Brooklyn, New York.In 1964, the bakery and shop relocated to its present location at 5030 Geary Boulevard in San Francisco where traditional NY-style bagels have been made from scratch from the finest ingredients, boiled in water and then baked. We have been baking REAL bagels for 50 years!!!
While the name of the bakery makes it obvious that we do bagels, we also bake from scratch every day artisan breads (like fresh challahs and rye), traditional cookies (like hamentashen, black and white cookies, rugalah and Russian tea cakes), as well as everyone’s favorite cookies and pastries (the best chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies around, bear claws, cheese pockets, etc.).
In January 2006, our state-of-the-art bakery was renovated to include a NY-style deli, seating and an art gallery. Right away, we won “Best of” for Deli and Take-out in the 2006 SF Weekly’s “Best of” Reader’s Poll and have continued to get accolades from customers (email Jenny to share your feedback) and the press alike.
